Living on campus is a game changer.

To make the most of your college experience, come live on campus. Not only does it put you in the middle of everything, but research shows that it improves student grades. Carney-Johnston Residence Hall, once the most popular place for Lambuth University students to live, was renovated and reopened in Fall 2013. This historic building, located on the quadrangle between Wilder College Union and the Wellness, Health & Fitness Building (WHFB) on the new UofM Lambuth grounds, offers housing for up to 190 students in single and double rooms with suite-style baths.
